Planning Consent Granted

Thursday, 11th of October 2012

Planning consent has been granted by Stafford Borough Council for the development of 40 acres of land to the north of Stafford town centre. The consent for light industrial, research and development, manufacturing and distribution and storage (B1b, B1c, B2 and B8). The site, owned by Staffordshire County Council, could be set to create as many as 2,500 new skilled jobs on the new £8.5m business park.

Work should begin shortly at the Redhill site in Stafford after the scheme was given the green light by Stafford Borough Council.

The business park is aimed at companies in the research and technology sector, enabling them to set up advanced manufacturing and production facilities.

Staffordshire County Council’s deputy leader and cabinet member for skills and employment Ben Adams said: “We aim to get things moving as soon as possible on the Redhill site to ensure we are bringing in jobs and investment at the earliest opportunity.

“We have been working closely with Stafford Borough Council and would like to thank members of its planning committee for their backing for improved employment opportunities and prosperity for the town and the county.

“The potential to deliver up a significant amount of hi-tech jobs means this is big news. Redhill will be a welcome addition to our family of sites for business development and increase the county’s skilled workforce.”

He said the new site was key to Staffordshire’s continuing economic regeneration, which is being led by the likes of the i54 site in Southern Staffordshire, set to the home of Jaguar Land Rover’s new £355m engine plant.

Seven plots at Redhill aimed at high quality businesses will be developed. The site lies on county council land to the north of an existing retail and business park.

Work should be completed by late summer 2013.

Also building on successes gained at Lymedale Business Park in Newcastle, Staffordshire Technology Park in Stafford and Towers Business Park in Rugeley, the county said the new site at Redhill would add significantly to the county’s growing status globally as a key place to invest.

County growth programme set to deliver 20,000 jobs on completed development projects and boost workplace skills

Posted by | i54 South Staffordshire, News, Redhill Business Park | No Comments

Business development and infrastructure projects so far completed by the county council as part of a decade-long growth project could see the creation of nearly 20,000 jobs.

The total value of the 15 projects completed since the growth programme began in in 2014 is £160million. Projects which are currently being carried out are valued at £204million – £15million of which is from direct county council investment.

With current (live) projects, for every £1 invested by the county council, £13.60 worth of private sector and other investment is levered in. So far on the completed sites such as i54 South Staffordshire and Redhill Business Park there are already 6,650 people working or jobs have been committed.

In addition to creating employment in Staffordshire, the sites attract additional investment, boost supply chain industries and contribute to public services through increased business rates.

The completed employment sites generate around £9 million worth of total business rates per annum – half of which is returned back to central government. It is anticipated that completed and planned developments will eventually generate £30million in business rates.

In addition to the delivery of major business and infrastructure development, the county council’s growth programme includes support for existing businesses, the development of skills to meet the needs of employers and the roll-out of superfast fibre broadband.

The county council administers the Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire Growth Hub on behalf of the local enterprise partnership (LEP). It gives support to small and medium sized businesses – including signposting them to funding opportunities and professional advice. Between May 2014 and May 2018 is has assisted over 6,000 businesses.

As a result of increased employment opportunities there is an increased need by businesses for skills in advanced manufacturing and engineering. An Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering Hub is being delivered across six sites to provide state of the art learning facilities and equipment. It is supporting over 4,500 learners and adding millions to the local economy output.

Staffordshire County Council’s economic growth leader Mark Winnington said: “Our economic growth programme is delivering the creation of skilled jobs and millions of pounds worth of investment. It is a priority of the county council to ensure that there are increased employment opportunities in our key sectors with higher skilled, better paid jobs making us a more prosperous county,

“Before the current programme ends a further 17,000 jobs will be created and 4,500 trainees, learners or apprentices supported.

“In addition to delivering the infrastructure to pave the way for business development we will build our network of support for small businesses which employ 55 per cent of our workforce. This programme is helping us to ensure that we have a balanced and strong economy in Staffordshire.”

The economic growth programme report will be discussed at a meeting of the Prosperous Staffordshire Select Committee next week.

Multi-million pound business investment creates thousands of Staffordshire jobs

Posted by | Branston Locks, i54 South Staffordshire, Kingswood Lakeside Park, News, Redhill Business Park | No Comments

Investment totalling nearly £400million in Staffordshire business developments since 2014 will lead to the creation of over 13,000 jobs on schemes completed as part of the county council’s growth programme.

A report published today states that since 2014, economy boosting projects with a total value of £383million have been completed, are under construction or being planned. Of this total, some £56million of direct investment will come from the county council. This means that for every £1 invested by the county council an additional £15 is levered in from the private sector or from the Government.

The number of small businesses with fewer than 49 employees in Staffordshire is growing and makes up 96 per cent of all businesses in the county. Larger businesses account for 55 per cent of employment in Staffordshire, reinforcing their role in the local economy. Staffordshire has seen near full employment for some time with just one per cent of the local population claiming unemployment benefits. This is lower than both regional and national averages.

In addition to its business development investment, the county council has continued to develop its business support programme. This includes the delivery of the Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire Growth Hub on behalf of the Local Enterprise Partnership. The hub has helped more than 4,300 local companies since it was set up in 2014.

Redhill StaffordSuccessful development schemes have included i54 South Staffordshire, Redhill Business Park in Stafford and Kingswood Lakeside in Cannock. The county council is also supporting development at Branston Locks near Burton and Bericote Four Ashes in South Staffordshire.

Staffordshire County Council’s economic growth leader Mark Winnington said: “Staffordshire’s economy is in healthy shape and this report demonstrates how far we have come in a relatively short time. We have seen considerable investment in the last three years which has seen significant returns and will result in the creation of thousands of jobs.

“It is a county council priority to do all we can to create the right conditions for businesses to grow and thrive. As figures suggest, employment is fairly evenly distributed across large and small businesses and so it is important that we promote a mixed and balanced economy.

“We have established a number of good quality employment sites with more in the pipeline which gives us a strong basis to make the most of Government funding opportunities. We are continuing to support businesses of all sizes and attract new investment and look forward to building on our successes into 2018.”

The economic growth capital and development programme report will be discussed by the county council’s Prosperous Staffordshire Select Committee next Friday December 15.

Further business expansion paves way for more Staffordshire jobs

Posted by | Bericote Four Ashes, News, Redhill Business Park | No Comments

Further business expansion in Staffordshire announced this month will strengthen its position as a place of opportunity, the county’s economic growth leader has said.

With business development continuing at pace across the county, two businesses operating in Staffordshire have just announced further major investment. Jaguar Land Rover is planning to build a £40million storage facility for 6,500 vehicles in Stone. Developer Stoford is holding a public consultation today on the plans for the site at Stone Business Park which would create 75 jobs. The development would complement Jaguar Land Rover’s manufacturing facility at i54 South Staffordshire and its other Midlands sites.

Stafford-based Perkins, which produces diesel and gas engines for global export, has submitted its plans for site expansion in the county town. The company employs 750 people. Meanwhile GE’s relocation to the county council-developed Redhill Business Park in Stafford should be completed by next month. In South Staffordshire, automotive supplier Gestamp has started initial operations at the Bericote Four Ashes Business Park early as the county council completes road junction improvements and access to the site.

Staffordshire County Council economic growth leader Mark Winnington said: “Jaguar Land Rover’s announcement on plans for its storage facility in Stone demonstrates further commitment to Staffordshire and will complement its thriving manufacturing facility here. Like GE, Perkins is a long- established county employer where generations have worked and we are pleased it is expanding here, enabling it to offer greater opportunities and high quality jobs locally. And with Gestamp’s operations beginning earlier than expected, we are seeing real strength and resilience in our economy. These are all important developments as we continue to support the creation of better paid, higher skilled jobs in Staffordshire.”

The site development by the county council has been a great success and with near full occupancy we know our investment has made a difference.
